I'm going to the Friends of the Ballard Locks meeting 6:30 to 8:00 pm at
Warehouse #1 at the Locks on the third Thursday of the month, June 18. I
think Brian is coming too, and maybe we should have one more editor come
along? Specifically someone who has experience with recruiting and training
new editors. It would be good if the Friends of the Locks gave us research
help, but even better if we could get some of them to jump in and help
editing. So someone who could speak to the group about how to get started
editing and become a Wikipedian?
We could bring more people along than this, but we might have some time
constraints, depending on how full their agenda is. I said we'd need about
15 minutes to talk, and answer questions.
GLAM folks, you may be interested in the announcement below. (:

To summarize (some of) the results of my Wikipedian in Residence project of
last year <https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:GLAM/Expedities>, a web
application was built and launched yesterday:
It's a geographic visualization tool for a series of historical events,
linked to Wikipedia. My WiR project was about expeditions, and this web
tool puts these expeditions, their Wikipedia articles and/or Commons images
'on the map’, as a journey.
The best examples of Wikipedia and Commons integration are in the
Dutch-language expeditions in the application.
It's a pilot, and the source code is open sourced on Github -
https://github.com/ndkv/vm ... feel free to download, tweak, investigate,
contact me and/or the developer if you have questions :-)
Many greetings, Sandra (User:Spinster)
